This entry wraps up the spring trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. I walked around several times, taking a break for food and then heading back to areas, so the order of the shots might seem wonky at times. It was a great day with lots of sunlight and various light plays throughout the day. After the early school crowds, it really emptied out for the remainder of the day.
Walking in through the north entrance.
Shadows and various flowerings.
Some really fantastic shadow work over by the rose garden.
I always love to get some images of this bridge.
Hunkering in the shade can give you a more interesting image than just straight forward.
A view from the shrine.
Spring blossoming on the trees.
Looking out across the pond in the Japanese Garden.
Looking through the cherry blossoms at the pond.
The conservatory or, as The Americans thinks, Paris in the 1970s.
Lilies in the pond and a great reflection of the clouds.
Back to the lake without the schools and now with added clouds.
Either a bench or a prayer nook in the Shakespeare Garden.
The field is empty today.
This is an interesting looking tree.
Such a strange trunk.
An English-style rock bridge.
A view to show off more of the teeny tiny creek.
A willow with no leaves. Very spooky with the darker clouds in the background.
Back to the Japanese Garden with more intense sunlight.
The lower falls and lots of turtles in the Japanese Garden.
The pond with lots of cloud coverage.
A small stage that I have never seen in use in the gardens. Could be a nice place for shakespeare.
Next week: The first half of a two part trip through the southern park of Ft. Tryon Park.
